    Can any list the Wedding Music from the 1511 Sabina of Bavaria/ Duke Ulrich of Wurttemberg ill-fated marriage? The 6/7vv “In Summis”(modern name) Mass was by Heinrich Finck (c.1444-1527).

    Perhaps this page isn’t the ideal location for such a question, Sigmund. There are lots of specialist early music pages on Facebook. Perhaps someone there may know. I’m afraid I don’t. Good luck!

    Thanks for your blog. Really interesting a well written articles. Any idea of evidence for the bowed psaltery? It’s often used as a ” medieval” instrument but lacking in documentation?

    Hello, Andy. If you go to the article on the psaltery http://earlymusicmuse.com/psaltery/ you’ll see mention of the fact that the bowed psaltery is a modern instrument, unrelated to the true medieval psaltery. All the best. Ian

    Dear Mr. Pittaway, I have a very good book with all the scores of Atalanta Fugiens. If you are interested, I can scan it and send it to you. If you want more information, just tell me.
    Thanks a lot for your site and your work!
    Warm regards,
    Tancredo Braga

      Hello, Tancredo, and thank you for your appreciation.

      Atalanta Fugiens is an intriguing and wonderful piece of work. Thank you for your very kind offer. I have so much music on my shelves I want to get round to one day, so I am reluctant to add one more work to the pile! Did you know there is an excellent website with the whole work online, in facsimile, in translation, and all the works sung? You’ll find it at https://furnaceandfugue.org/

      With my best wishes.

      Ian
